Workout your glutes and hamstrings today!
Most of us blame neglecting certain aspects of a training program or not exercising on a lack of time.Unfortunately, neglecting muscle groups such as your hamstrings can have serious consequences.
Hamstring-centric exercises help balance your overall leg development. Heavy compound movements are best for adding strength and size.
One heavy hamstring workout per week is generally enough. The following exercises are designed to create more strength and tighten the area. To see a major improvement in your glutes and hamstrings try to fit them in at least twice a week.
Also, do not forget to take your progress photo before and after by using our Fitness Trainerize App.
Hamstrings workout plan
Your leg routine should definitely start with some warm up for about 5-10 min using any cardio machine or by completing full body circuit followed by foam rolling your legs.
Why foam rolling? It helps you to activate your muscles and prepare them for the actual workout. I would also suggest to add rolling to the end of your training routine after you stretch. It helps to release all pressure from muscles, remove lactic acid which accumulated there during your training and it also helps to prevent any injury and tightness.
Glutes and hamstrings need our attention and focus in order to be changed, lifted or strengthened. Always follow correct training technique and if you are unsure about certain types of exercises, just ask the stuff in the gym or your personal trainer. If yo still cannot find the answer, feel free to contact us as we will be more than happy to assist you on your fitness journey.
